General Admission Stream
The General Admission Stream provides streamlined funding to small and/or emerging film festivals that are aimed at the general public. All applications for the General Admission Stream must be submitted online via Dialogue.
Open Access Stream – Reopening Fund
The Open Access Stream – Reopening Fund offers access to the Reopening Fund to Canadian festivals that did not receive Telefilm funding support through the Limited Edition and General Admission streams of the Promotion Program. Festivals that are refused funding through the General Admission Stream are automatically considered, in priority, on a first-come first-serve basis, for access to funding under the Open Access Stream, provided they meet all eligibility criteria.
Applications for the Open Access Stream– Reopening Fund must be submitted via email to email@example.com. Please ensure that all documents (application form including direct deposit information, attestation and void cheque) are provided in the email. Templates for these documents are available on the Program webpage.
All applicants are encouraged to read the Guidelines and the Essential Information Guide, available on the webpage of the Promotion Program – General Admission Stream and the Open Access Stream – Reopening Fund.
